“Gershwin has in many ways been the musical accompaniment to my life. Like any composer, however, George Gershwin was more than an island - he was a repository of cultural influences and experiences that informed his compositional style. From 19th century Russia to Tin Pan Alley, Stride piano to Cuba, Gershwin took everything in but invested them all with his unique sound. Join me on a personal journey through some of Gershwin’s works and classical composers in his world.”
Simon Tedeschi
